I would consider an air install a more than just a simple install. A lot of things to consider when installing air. Not only do you have to consider what car you're working on but you have to consider the driver and their wants. Making their wants work with their car isn't always possible but I feel Impact Performance considers all these things during a consultation. Impact will often replace inferior parts that sometimes come with air kits with more reliable ones...depending on the cost it may or may not reflect on the final bill. I see your point on forum popular shops failing to deliver but I would also consider who is vouching for the shop. Everyone who's vouched for Impact Performance in this thread alone are reputable people.
Exactly the answer I was looking for.
For a quick background on why I asked this question -
The forums I come from have a VERY popular NorCal shop that people swear by just because the owner is a cool guy. However every car he has touched, that I am aware of, has resulted in failure in anything outside of a body kit.
I spent over $5k fixing failed cam and suspension installs. Another guy spent over $100,000 on a FI build that should of net over 1,100 hp. It never got over 668rwhp and has been undrivable for 95% of the time.
So you can understand why I am always wary of forum popular shops. I finally found a great LS based shop, but that took too long. If I dig into the IS350 I will probably have to sit in the shop for a week and watch them before I trust them with my car =p
